Live @ WKDU: Dragon King

Friday, April 29, 2011 - 3:00pm

The 24-year-old Port Richmond singer and guitarist has crafted a formidable résumé in recent years: infectious effects-pedal folk with Hop Along, blues-rock swagger with Elevator Fight, esoteric projects like Norwegian Arms and Patty Crash. His latest project, Dragon King has released its latest work, Warriors EP. The set adds range to Angelella's pallet: the acrobatic rap of "Wolfboy" moves in a Mad Decent swagger; "Wild Night" is all four-on-the-floor and festive. But then there's the introverted sensitivity and soaring vocal harmonies of "Altamont Sunrise" and the title track.
